Revoltech introduces Mini Date Masamune and reintroduces Legacy figures

Revol Mini continues to be a thing. After Kinnikuman, Solid Snake, and Iron Man Mk VI, the 4th release in the line will be Date Masamune of Sengoku Basara. Just as with the other releases, Masamune got a release  in the ...

Yes, there's a third Revol Mini. Yes, it's an Iron Man.

Revol Mini is a line that isn't even out yet, but it's already starting to feel old to me. Yes, there was a new version of Snake. Then it was coupled with Kinnikuman, which while he is a great figure, it's one that has been d...

RevolMini rolls on with MGS' Cyborg Ninja

If you were hoping for more Metal Gear Solid figures, then I have good news. If you were hoping they'd be back to normal Revoltechs, well, too bad. It is extremely good news that Cyborg Ninja is getting a release, however it ...

A better look at Revol Mini Solid Snake and Kinnikuman

This month's scans brought news of the new Revoltech line, Revol Mini. The inaugural figures of the line are none other than Solid Snake and Kinnikuman. It's not the announcement that many were expecting, but nevertheless, he...

Revoltech goes small with new revolMiNi line

Revoltech hasn't held much attention lately. It's kind of saddening, but the line has failed to capture our imaginations with licenses and the actual product like figma and Figuarts have. That's not to say that Kaiyodo is any...

TMNT becomes TMNR: Teenage Mutant Ninja Revoltechs

Say what you will about Kaiyodo's Revoltech line but it is, in fact, not dead. Despite facing stiff competition from companies like Max Factory and Bandai, the Revoltech line has continued to find niches in the marketplace wh...

Kaiyodo's Revoltech The Bat rises for a preview photo
Kaiyodo's Revoltech The Bat rises for a preview
by Brian Szabelski

The latest addition to the Tokusatsu Revoltech website is a page for the upcoming figure of The Bat. Yep, a poseable figure of Batman's craft from The Dark Knight Rises is coming in June, and it looks as odd at first glance as you might expect. It's also a chance for us to see the figure fully painted up close.

So what accessories does it come with? Well, besides the stand, you get a tiny Batman to sit inside the cockpit. He's not super detailed, just enough so you know that it's the Dark Knight. Kaiyodo's suggested retail price before taxes is ¥4,743 so I'd imagine it'll be a little closer to ¥5,000 at retail. I'm not sure I'm going to pick this one up because it's really for a niche audience (Nolanverse Batman fans), but what about you?

Why, hello there, Revoltech Hello Kitty

AmiAmi has released a review for Kaiyodo's upcoming Revoltech Hello Kitty / Kitty White. While the photos are fun, the review fails to answer what was running through Kaiyodo's head(s) when the company decided to produce a Re...

Revoltech Domo-kun is real and ready for pre-order

First there was Hello Kitty, now Kaiyodo has made a Revoltech Domo-kun figure. This Domo will be articulated and come with loads of accessories. I’ve seen many Domo figures, but not many with articulation. This one has...

Revoltech sculptor hops on Kickstarter to fund new figure

It's not often you hear about the sculptors behind mass-produced figures. Some of the names get bandied about and you can sometimes recognize when one particular person has molded a characters, but they usually don't get the ...

Revoltech's rapid repaints/rereleases run rampant

There was a time when new Revoltech figures came as frequently as figma do today. These days Kaiyodo seems content with releasing a few new figures every month next to a pile of reissues and repaints. In October it was the th...
